Program Description

  • Advanced Diploma in Dental Technology at George Brown College is offered as a 3 years (6 semesters) program.
  • It is an on-campus program offered on a full-time basis.
  • This program is unique in Ontario. Students in the Dental Technology program will learn the specialized skills of a Dental Technologist.
  • They will learn how to design and fabricate various oral devices that have been prescribed to a patient by a regulated dental practitioner (often a dentist).
  • Students also learn how to use specialized hand tools, molds, and the latest technology to make oral devices that are as unique as the individual's students will be creating them for.
  • Students will practice their skills in university on-site high-tech dental labs.
  • Graduates of this program are eligible to apply to take the registration examination and apply to the College of Dental Technologists of Ontario to obtain a Certificate of Registration.
  • Without certificate, graduates may work as a lab technician under the supervision of a Registered Dental Technologist.

  • In preparation for the external field component in year three, students will learn and practice skills in all areas of the dental laboratory, from introductory skills in model work to advanced digital dentistry procedures.
  • During Semester Six, students will spend two days a week in class and three days per week offsite (approximately 21 hours per week) at an external professional laboratory.
  • Students are also required to complete the pre-placement health form and organize their own external lab experience, and must have program approval prior to starting.
